    I want something more than nice tunes from Floyd myself, lyrical bite, something compelling, I don't hate ER but I don't feel a need to go back to it.

    I lmuch prefer RTL to OAI although ITLWRW & AMTD to me is much more exciting, so I guess we come at Floyd from a different place. The best of PF for me is when Waters and DG come together and while I don't mind some post Waters PF, I can't say apart from High Hopes I put it up with their best work.

    I love the guitar of Gilmour and the keyboards of RW but with Waters involved, WYWH is my favourite PF album and album of all time, to me this was a perfect synergy of those elements.

    Although I just find the Waters dominant PF much more exciting than the 3 albums after he left but that is me.

    And PF was really Syd's Band, and I would contend, they would have potentially been even better, if Syd had not checked out, and still have added Gilmour to the Band as temporarily happened on 'A Saucerful of Secrets'. Would have been interesting to hear what Music they might have created together. Would it have prevented some future Great Songs, like 'Echoes'? Possibly, but hopefully would not have happened.

    Pink Floyd is an unusual Band for me, as despite being one of my Favorite Music Artists from the 1960s-1977, there is not 1 Album, that makes my Best of List, as each Album has a few Weak Songs on it-IMO(but 'Animals' is the closest, despite Waters dominating the Band by that Album, as at least the Music was still great, if not Space-Rock no longer). Love The Early Years 6 Individual Box Sets though(The Big Box Set was too expensive as missed out on the price drop to around 223 Sterling Pounds at the time in March about 4 months after it's release).

    Waters, Gilmour Pink Floyd was a finely tuned machine. Although I still like the three albums after Waters.

  7. Just received an email from London Drugs to inform me they cannot fulfill my back-order of Meddle & OBC as their vinyl supplier has gone out of business.

    Such a shame. How did it affect play? Did the needle skip, or did it play through the scratch?

    Most of these recent reissues sound excellent if you end up with an undamaged copy, but in my experience, the quality control has been pretty bad overall. Of the six I've bought, three have arrived warped and/or badly scratched.

    It gave a loud tick. First I thought I just needed to clean it but it was clearly a scratch...... Hopefully today I receive a new one!

    The Sound of Vinyl (a Universal site) have a listing for Pink Floyd: Live In Rome 1968 to be released on 25 January on the 1960's Records label.

    It has 2 tracks Astronomy Domine and Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun.

    It is a fabulous sounding set. I have been playing mine a lot. Great for a Saturday or Sunday afternoon around the house.

    Yes! New box arrived today. Can someone explain how there can be fingerprints on a sealed LP? There are some light scratches on LP 1 and LP3 but they are not audible.

    And yes, this sunday I will be able to let this set play loud!

    You don't miss much imo... the feature films had already been released (and WITH subtitles), and the '67 BBC material is horrendous... much better sound on the boots. Nice to have '74 Echoes though, and the alternate Arnold Layne video.

    Human hands put them into the sleeves. (Which BTW I replaced with MOFI sleeves).

    Enjoy your new set! It is a beaty!

    I own the 74 Echoes on the Boot CD Concert of DSOTM, so I am good there. Yeah, I doubt I would have watched the movies much anyways, so was mainly interested in the music on 'Continu-ation' Box Set.

    The Committee pieces are nice, although short and taken directly from the film (bit of voice-over). Can no doubt be found on boots as well.

    I forgot to add but I also own the BBC 1967 Boot CD.
    Back in March 2017, I was within a few hours of buying the Big Box Set on Anazon-UK as the price kept dropping and was down to around £218 which at the time with VAT removal and shipping would have come out to around $245 with £ conversion rate to the $ at that time. I was going to check with my credit union if my credit card would allow me to cancel and reorder if the price would drop even lower. Well, later that day the Box Set jumped to over £360, and never got lower than £290 as far as I saw when checking at times. Although, with people complaining how oversized the Big Box was, I am happy with the 6 Individual Book Box Sets that I bought for either $30 or $35 each.

    Yep, I also switched the inners!

    Just finished side 1. This is excellent! Had to check my settings to make sure it was set to stereo......overwhelming mix with so much space.

    Indeed great!

    Here is hoping for a big fancy box set of Is There Anybody Out There? The Wall Live 1980-1981. That would look really cool sitting next to my Pulse box set.
